About the watering
Commonwealth environmental water was made available for use in Paika Lake on the western edge of the lower Murrumbidgee floodplain to contribute to:
- maintaining the health and enabling regeneration of floodplain wetland native plant communities
- supporting the habitat requirements of wetland fauna including fish, invertebrates, frogs, turtles and waterbirds.
